FUEL INJECTION versus CARBURETION for Personal Airplane Engines 480189

DESCRIBED here is an intake metering injection system suitable for low-horsepower aircraft engines.
Gasoline injection is said to have many advantages over carburetion for this class of engines, such as:
  1. 1.
    Complete elimination of manifold icing-one of the most troublesome problems in light engines equipped with carburetors.
  2. 2.
    Better idling characteristics.
  3. 3.
    Faster engine acceleration.
  4. 4.
    Lower maximum cylinder-head temperatures.
  5. 5.
    Better fuel economy.
  6. 6.
    Higher power.
  7. 7.
    Longer periods between overhauls.
  8. 8.
    Simplified engine cooling.
  9. 9.
    Flatter engine designs are possible.
